Go Coconuts!

Hi Friends!

Just thought I'd share a card with you that I made for my sister's birthday.  Her
daughter and daughter-in-laws are hosting a luau themed bday party to celebrate her
50th birthday!  When my other sis turned 40, this sis now turning 50 gave her a
grass skirt and a coconut bra for her bday!  So, it's always been the joke to wear a
coconut bra to celebrate your bday...hehehe!  Anyways, I love the MFT images,
especially the Pure Innocence line.  I knew this image would be perfect for her
bday card.  I so admire Jodi Collins expertise with these sweet images, so I cased
a card on her blog, Stamping A Latte.  Wouldn't you love to be in Hawaii
right now?  The weather here seems tropical to so the 90's.  I believe
tomorrow the weather will cool down...yeah!  Stay cool and take care, hugs!

  1. So fun to have a card that's really personal and meaningful! Love that scalloped brown circle behind her that resembles a coconut shell. Beautiful flower too.

    Year round weather.

  9. How cute for your sis and it sounds like it is perfect with that coconut bra thing going on. LOL
    It is supposed to be 100 degrees in the deep south today..where I live. I think it was that yesterday or maybe 99. It's the humidity that kills you.
    Stay cool.
